Do I need a permit for a garage sale?
No, but there are rules in place for holding them:
  • Garage sales are limited to 3 sales during any 12 month period
  • 1 sign in the owner’s front yard and 2 other signs (off-site) are allowed on private property (between the house and sidewalk or fence), with the owner’s permission. Signs:
    • Are not to exceed 2 square feet in size
    • Must be placed at least 4 feet from street curb line
    • Are to be posted no longer than 72 hours
    • Must be picked up

No signs are allowed on any utility pole, tree, fence, or structure, or to be placed on any public road right-of-way (street corners).
